During a time of record unemployment, Subway opens thousands of positions with employee safety top-of-mind
With record unemployment levels across Canada and the U.S., Subway® Restaurants announced its local Franchise Owners seek to hire approximately 50,000 jobs in North American restaurants, including just under 6,000 in Canada. This effort further deepens the brand’s community connections as Subway can be found in almost every community across Canada, and directly addresses some of the devastating effects of the COVID-19 crisis.
Subway recognizes the importance of supporting its communities and providing safe, reliable job opportunities to those seeking employment – now more than ever. Starting this summer at participating North America restaurants, thousands of job opportunities will be available ranging from entry-level to management.
“As our business continues to see a growing demand for our value offerings, curbside pick-up and delivery, we are happy to support such a large-scale employment opportunity to meet the demands of our guests,” said Aidan Hay, Subway VP of Operations for North America. “We’ve been fortunate that a majority of Subway restaurants remained open the past few months and are so appreciative to the Franchise Owners and their employees who have made that possible. For existing and new employees, it is important to us that each one feel valued and safe when working in our restaurants.”
Subway continues to roll out appropriate safety procedures that protect restaurant employees and guests alike. Over the past several months, Subway has been a leader in enhancing its operational procedures to keep restaurants safe and clean. Measures such as closing its dining rooms, working with third-party delivery partners to ensure contactless delivery, sourcing masks for restaurant employees and plexiglass shields at registers, requiring appropriate social distancing guidelines in restaurants among employees and guests, reinforcing stringent health and food safety standards and providing its Franchise Owners with guidelines for employee wellness checks have allowed Subway to keep its restaurants running safely. As the brand moves forward with new employment opportunities, safety will remain its top priority.
